Wonderful synthesis of scientific background and poetic insight.

Another wonderful book by Diane Ackerman
Diane Ackerman is a national treasure. Her writing is sensuous and complex, and expresses a profound wonder in the mysteries of nature. In An Alchemy of Mind, Ackerman guides the reader through the forest of mind and brain, and with her gifts as a naturalist and a poet, makes sense of the scientific studies of evolution, brain structure, language, and the individual's experience self. A reader new to reading Diane Ackerman's work might want to start with A Natural History of the Senses, or Cultivating Delight.
